I have interconnecting smoke alarms, but no panel, how can I tell which alarm went off first? I am getting annoying false alarms and to be able to workout why, I need to know which alarm is the culprit.

Hi Pingpong

I guess you are referring mainly to false alarm.

All quality rf smoke alarms, eg from Ei Electronics and Kidde, identify the unit causing false alarms:

The Ei3100RF range from EI, for example, identifies the alarm with a red light flashing rapidly.

The more advanced range Ei600RF not only identifies the smoke alarm causing the false alarm but also offers a central locator switch which allows you to switch off all alarm sounders with the exception of the alarm having detected a fire/caused a false alarm.

Kind Regards
